Lessons on Using Internet.
Lemme, Bobbi; Donovan, Terri
Intended for beginning Internet users and adult basic education instructors, this manual presents a very basic, instructional approach to exploring the Internet, with explicit instructions on what to do, places to go, and interesting things to try. An introduction on getting started is followed by sections on electronic mail, including using the Skagit Valley College network and finding the Internet e-mail option on Windows. Other sections address subscribing to Usenet news groups and listservs and using Gopher as a navigating tool. The next two sections are optional for a beginner. They cover file transfer protocol and the World Wide Web. The next section discusses applications of the Internet for educators and provides a review of some educational resources with related learning skills. The final section lists sources of further information. Appendixes contain the following: guidelines for Internet protocols and "netiquette"; "smileys"; tips for choosing a secure password; Internet contacts by college; glossary of terms for Internet resources; and creating a signature file.
